I'm thinking a Flow Control Device isn't worthwhile for my Appartamento...

Has ANYONE actually done this rather than theorize that it's possible? I'd be interted to see a photo of what the group head looks like

Why clean my Niche Zero?

Make sure you wipe down the inside of the exit chute once in a while. How long a while is will be up to you. Don't have a niche, don't know what the exit chute is made of, but I had a small brass pipe as an exit chute for my grinder. Never even thought of wiping it down. I

End game grinder: EG-1, Kafatek MC4 or Flat Max?

I have a Monolith Max from the 2020 run (still with the SSP LU burrs). It's a superb grinder, great for espresso but also does a really good pourover. I don't really have much by the way of complaint after almost two years of use (and I'm quite critical about my coffee kit, I had a couple big criticisms for

Help! No pump pressure. 2014 Profitec Pro 700

Thanks Nunas. I've done that a number of times already to no avail. Tried again just to be sure. I was able to verify that the motor is engaging the drive shaft which would (in theory) be connected to the pump so I'm still left baffled

I'm thinking a Flow Control Device isn't worthwhile for my Appartamento...

He'll sell you an adapter that lets you use it with the M6 threading. The threading for the y-connector is still G1/8, so you'd need a reverse adapter if you have an M6 thermometer

Profitec Pro 600 Review from a Pro 500 Vet.

You can't use the 500 without a group head thermometer and expect stable shot to shot temperatures. consistent shot temperatures are a major variable in producing the best possible extractions. You can't use a flow control properly without a group mounted pressure gauge. Flow control can be a major step forward in shot quality depending
